The Hype of Cedar Hill

Posted by in Camping

I recently picked up the book 60 Hikes Within 60 Miles at REI. Brilliant read. I do notice that may people including this book recommends to go to Cedar Hill State Park. There is a lot of hype surrounding this park. It was pricy. For a site with electric and water it was $25 a night plus park fee. The weekend total was $60. I left my apartment at 6pm and got there close to 7pm due to traffic. It was nice that the front office stays open until 10pm. I checked in and they gave me a site and after driving around a while I picked another one instead. Sadly, I should have stayed… but every now and then you need a lesson. I pitched the tent and started a fire. From my site I had a direct view of the lake. It was really nice and calm. I settled in for the night and started reading Harry Potter. It was a good start to the weekend adventure.
